Please correct med if I'm wrong.  I assume you are talking about the
test in hald/linux/blockdev.c which sets
storage.removable.support_async_notification based on the flags exported
by the kernel in /sys/block/*/capability?  I cannot see how this can
work at the moment.  There doesn't seem to be any driver setting the 
GENHD_FL_MEDIA_CHANGE_NOTIFY flag yet.  Or am I missing something?
